the chain/handrail along the boardwalk is a good idea, might have to add that. and, we only have two boards.

if there is no chain available, consider using barb wire

This place, I have seen on film. That boardwalk is for yaks. The chains are there so you can hear them coming. :shock: And that bench-looking thing carved into the rock is your overnight accomodation. :?

So, I believe Yggy's Hof is a bit more user-friendly. :lol:

I think the seat is to make it easier when you meet people going the other way.

sometimes I wonder about the sheltered life I've lived.........I learned to drive on the road to the Hof.......and as teens we'd race, getting up to 50 mph in our old pickups.............not sure why no one died.

Maybe you were good?
And lucky.

At the rainbow gathering in the arkansas rain forest, there was a road that dropped a thousand feet in one curve.
You had to make the traverse to reach the rest of the camping area, and make the climb back to camp.
Good road, but very steep gravel with no barriers.
Sheer dropoff.
Did people park on the descending curve right next to the edge?
Yes, even lined up with the descent.

In a remote area in the mountains there, a friend reached a dropoff on foot with a huge pile of cars he describes as the history of automobiles.
The valley is so hard to reach, except by a long walk on foot, that first responders just cut people out.
I'm sure there are wagons at the bottom.
